What happened that made you notifying about your guide dog a disaster?

I don't give advance notice of my blindness or my guide dog unless I
need some accommodation related to one or the other. Like if I am going
a conference and I need materials emailed to me in advance I will of
tell them that I'm blind. I have never informed a hotel ahead of time.
haven't given advanced notice when flying either, but when I got to the
first airport they made some sort of note in the computer, changed my
seating and set up someone to meet me at each gate. I don't think I
have minded so much if this had actually been of help, but it turned out
be a gigantic disaster.
I think the only way to figure out what works for you and what doesn't
just try out different things and see what happens. some people choose
advance notice option and some don't, I say if it works for you then
the right choice for you.
